It’s the end of Cranberry Week.  Only one more recipe after this one.  But the important thing is to remember to:

Scalloped Sweet Potatoes with Cranberries and Honey

Ingredients:

  • 6 sweet potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350°.
Cook potatoes until tender and drain; peel and cut into 1/2-inch thick slices. Arrange slices in a baking dish. In a saucepan, mix cranberry sauce, water, honey, orange rind, and cinnamon. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add butter; stir until butter is melted. Pour cranberry mixture over potatoes, then bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes, or until glazed and hot.

Honey Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I love sweet potato fries, and everything is better with a little honey! These are quick and easy!

INGREDIENTS

2 Large Yams, washed and cut into wedges
1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or enough to coat Sweet Potatoes)
Fresh Ground Sea Salt
Fresh Ground Pepper
6 Tbsp Honey

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Wash Yams and cut them into same sized wedges. Lay Yams in a single layer on a cookie sheet.
3. Toss Yams with olive oil to thoroughly coat, and salt and pepper to taste.
4. Place in the oven for 45 minutes until Yams are soft, pierce easily with a fork, and start to get crispy
brown edges. Move/Turn Yams with tongs occasionally to ensure even cooking and browning.
5. During last 10 minutes of cooking drizzle fries with honey. Remove from oven when done. Serve warm.
